Students to Re-Plant Trees in Point Pleasant Park

(Tuesday, May 8/2001)--Members of the Prince Andrew High School's "Class of 2001" will be marking their graduation this year by re-planting Red Spruce trees in Point Pleasant Park.

Sue Uteck, a keen supporter of the project and the Councillor who represents the District in which Point Pleasant Park is located, will attend a kick-off ceremony at the Park this Thursday. Master of Ceremonies will be Kelli-Anne Hogg, the project coordinator for the Prince Andrew /Woodlawn Environmental Enhancement and Conservation Association (PAWEECA).

The association, in partnership with the Halifax Regional Municipality and the Point Pleasant Park Advisory Committee, has initiated the tree re-planting program to help re-establish those portions of the forest in the park that were devastated by an infestation of the Brown Spruce Longhorn Beetle.

The project has received generous support from Parks Canada, St. Mary's University, and staff and students at Prince Andrew High School.

The high school students will be re-planting the Red Spruce trees under the guidance of HRM Parks and Open Spaces staff.
